Artiestinformatie

Land   Verenigde Staten

In 2007 spelen Rob Resnick en Cal Shapiro voor het eerst samen in Boston, waar ze elkaar leerden kennen op een shoolfeestje. De twee komen samen te werken in de groep The Ride, een studentenbandje op de Tufts universiteit in Medford.


Na de schooltijd gaan ze als Timeflies nummers maken die duidelijk inde smaak vallen als ze deze op YouTube plaatsen. In het najaar van 2011 brengen ze met The Scotch Tape hun debuutalbum uit en het tijdschrift Vanity Far noemt de twee al gauw ‘musical masterminds’. Later herkent ook Billboard het talent van de twee en noemt ze al snel een act om in de gaten te houden.


Begin 2013 start hun eigen platenlabel, Forty8Fifty, waar I Cnoose U hun eerste single wordt. Later nam ook Fedde Le Grand het nummer onder handen. In het voorjaar van 2014 verschijnt het album After Hours, waaraan ook T-Pain, Fabolous en Mike Posner een bijdrage leveren.


De eerste single van hun derde album (Just For Fun) wordt Worse Things Than Love , en daarop is ook Natalie La Rose te horen. Met Once In A While, dat in 2016 verschijnt, scoren ze hun eerste Top 40-hit.


Songtekst

I thought I would know better
That's wishful thinkin'
Thought there'd be no pressure
That's wishful drinkin'
Is anything forever
Or just a feeling
What have I been so afraid of
I don't know

From Brooklyn to New York
Then off to the West
In Cali no Khaled
But fuck, we the best
My stripes stay American
Lemme express
And I keep it as live
As a Total Request
Then they ask me this questions
Like: how do you do it
Press and the road and the music
Truth is I'm always up
I'm always down
Worry about everyone else

But once in a while
I catch myself
Once in a while
I ask myself: what am I doing
Once in a while
I need your help
But once in a while
I feel like ooh
I just wanna dance

I feel good, yeah
I feel good
I feel good, yeah
I feel good

I live life like my blood type
B positive
These days something got me feeling
Quite the opposite
Music like my heroin
But all I hear is poppy shit
Time to get up off of it
And watch somebody copy it
I'm West bound
Down and out
Feeling fake now
Like somebody found me out
Need to slow down
I'm brownin' out
So many thoughts
Lemme drown 'em out

Yeah, I thought I would know better
That's wishful thinkin'
Thought there'd be no pressure
That's wishful drinkin'
Is anything forever
Or just a feeling
What have I been so afraid of
I don't know

But once in a while
I catch myself
Once in a while
I ask myself: what am I doing
Once in a while
I need your help
But once in a while
I feel like ooh
I just wanna dance

I feel good, yeah
I feel good, yeah
I feel good, yeah
I feel good
I feel good

I been looking at where we're going
There's no slowin' down to go back
And thinking of where we've been
No one's ever been given a road map
Say: slow down, turn here
Graduate and work here
Come and get a raise
When you finish up your first year, no
If you're doing it
You're doing it right
Keep it movin' now
Tell me what you doin' tonight
Cause sometimes we're up
Sometimes we're down
Don't worry about anyone else

But once in a while
I catch myself
Once in a while
I ask myself: what am I doing
Once in a while
I need your help
But once in a while
I feel like ooh
I just wanna dance

I feel good, yeah
I feel good
I feel good, yeah
I feel good

But once in a while, I
I just wanna dance
I feel good
